TWO lucky Sunderland fans are set to roar their team on at Wembley after scooping tickets from a Wearside car dealers.

David Redmayne, from East Boldon, and Megan Hemmer, 23, from Jarrow, won two pairs of tickets to Sunday’s Capital One Cup Final clash with Manchester City when they took part in an online promotion through Jennings Kia’s facebook page.

The tickets came as a double celebration for David, who will be celebrating his 30th birthday on the same day as the final, which he is now going to with his fiancée, Hayley.

David said; “I was shaking like a leaf, I just didn’t believe it was me who had won. I’ve never won anything in my life, it’s absolutely fantastic. All of my birthdays have come at once!”

The competition involved a number of fans being invited to attend the official draw, which took place at the group’s Parsons Road dealership in Washington.

Chris Nixon, franchise manager at the Kia dealership, handed over the tickets to the winners. He said; “The promotion generated a phenomenal response on Facebook. It’s been the talk of the town all week.

“It was a pleasure presenting the tickets to David and Megan.

“Let’s hope it’s a good result for Sunderland on Sunday.”
